Love, Jane by Ranee S. Clark {Blog Tour Review + Giveaway}

Love, Jane by Ranee S. Clark
272 pages
Published March 1st 2017 by Covenant Communications

Jane Reeves and Sean O'Callaghan seem to be a match made in heaven—but the timing is all wrong. Jane has her heart set on serving a mission, and she can't delay telling Sean the news any longer: not only has she quietly submitted her mission papers, but she's also leaving in a month ... for Alaska. Shocked and devastated, Sean struggles to come to terms with Jane's decision. Unable to deny the depth of their feelings for one another, Sean makes a promise to wait for her.

Life unfolds for both Jane and Sean, with communications limited to weekly e-mails. But with just a few months left in Jane's mission, Sean's messages stop. When she receives the dreaded "Dear Jane" breakup along with the news that she has been replaced by Sean's former flame, Jane knows the future she envisioned now belongs to another woman. But upon her return home, Jane quickly realizes some things are worth fighting for—perhaps, most of all, a shot at true love.


My Review: 4 Stars

I love this cover! And I've decided that after reading this, I'm a really nosy person. I love details (but not too many, haha) and wanted to know more about Jane and Sean. I wanted to see them meet; I wanted to know their deepest, darkest feelings; I wanted to understand what like experiences made them who they are. I felt like a few of those details were skimmed over or thrown in as afterthoughts, but if everything was written out, it would be a really long book, so I get why they weren't included.

The meat and bones of the story focuses on Jane and Sean and their road to romance--right thing, wrong timing. Sean is a great guy with ultimate amounts of patience, but I wanted Jane to be more open and communicative. Together, they have something great, but the path isn't easy. At all.

This book is a fun flipside to the typical "girl waits for guy." It's a fun twist to see it from another point of view. I also enjoyed the little side story that teaching at a high school brings to the plot.
A good portion of the book showcases Jane's LDS mission and her experiences of faith that helped her grow. I love it when characters go through a growth process. I love the transformations and progress that brings me hope. I love connecting to them in a way that makes them feel like "real" friends and I enjoyed my time with them.

Content: mild romance; moderate religious elements.
